Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy New EU 2030 targets - will national policy deliver?

We would like to invite you to the „Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy“ (BSEC) jointly with Öko Institut, PIK, Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, TU-Berlin, and Ecologic Institute.

We are going to discuss a set of questions emerging from the October European Council decision on the EU 2030 climate and energy strategy, with a particular focus on implementation of measures outside the scope of the ETS:

- What do the targets mean for the policy discourse and policy design in Germany and other EU countries?

- How can the governance process be designed and implemented - and what can it achieve? Will respective national targets and strategies be defined in time for Paris?

- How will the fund (“the 2%-reserve”) be designed in order to significantly scale up  low-carbon investment in CEE EU Member States?

- What does the decision mean for the international climate negotiations and which opportunities and risks does the implementation process create for Paris 2015?

The seminar will be primarily held in English. However, we also welcome contributions to the discussion in German.

Presentations:

Wolfgang Eichhammer, Head of Energy Policy and Energy Markets, Fraunhofer-Institute Karlsruhe

Oliver Sartor, Institute for Sustainable Development and Internatioanl Relations (IDDRI), Paris

Stefanie Hiesinger, EU Commission

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Next steps for EU ETS

    The EU Commission just suggested a set of reforms to the EU ETS.

    What is the plan? What is the underpinning analysis? Can it re-establish credibility of the scheme? - and when will it be implemented?

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy EU-MENA Electricity Cooperation: How to move forward with Lighthouse Projects?

    It has become silent around the Desertec and Mediterranean Solar Plan. Yet, the increasing energy demand in North Africa and the Middle East do have implications for European energy security. There are good reasons to move forward with renewable energy and energy efficiency cooperation. What is the status quo of initiatives like the Mediterranean Solar Plan or the Desertec Industrial Initiative? How has the debate developed since 2009? What are the major hurdles and obstacles to take? How can lighthouse projects develop across the Mediterranean?

    Global prospects for emissions pricing

    Emissions trading is floundering in Europe and about to be abolished in Australia. But China and Korea are planning to introduce emissions trading schemes (ETS), while Mexico and South Africa are planning carbon taxes. In this seminar I will present an analysis of developments on climate policy in Australia and China; argue that hybrid approaches with a price floor are suitable for reform of the EU ETS and for ETS in China and other industrialising countries; and discuss the idea of carbon tax thresholds as a way to overcome political resistance to carbon taxes.

    From Boom to Bust? - A critical look at US Shale Gas Projections

    Abstract
    The recent US shale gas boom has led to year-by-year upwards shifts in projected US natural gas production. However, it is unclear whether this production growth can be sustained, and whether the underlying resource estimates will prove accurate. Moreover, public acceptance may fall with ever more wells to be drilled and their adverse environmental impact. In accordance, regulation may be strengthened reducing the wells density and the potential area usable for production.
    In this paper, we take a critical look at current projection and investigate the implication of a less optimistic development of US shale gas production. By means of a partial equilibrium model we can highlight the change in natural gas flows and in necessary infrastructure expansions. In a world of declining US shale production (after 2015), Europe and Asia bear at least as high a burden as US consumers regarding the reduction in consumption levels of natural gas. Trade flows are attracted towards the US and in contrast to the current discussion it is not a question about LNG export capacity needs but about a regionally distributed import infrastructure.

    Desert Power for the Mediterranean: time to get started

    Transforming the electricity system to almost 100% renewable energies is a vision shared by the EU and its neighboring countries in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. The event, taking place in Brussels/Charlemagne Building, aims to discuss the implementation steps needed to reach an integrated, renewables-based power system in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa (EUMENA) as outlined in Dii's newly released strategy "Desert Power: Getting Started". The report has been developed by Dii with scientific contribution of the institutes CESI, Comillas, DIW Berlin, Fraunhofer ISI, and TU Vienna.
     
    "Desert Power: Getting Started" builds on key topics on the current EU agenda, offering  recommendations and evaluations of policies effecting a market-driven transition to a renewable electricity future. Together with high level stakeholders from the EUMENA political, scientific and industrial sectors, the conference will offer a platform to discuss short-term steps required to progress inter-regional renewables development as well as to look at the long-term investments needed to realize this vision beyond 2020.
     
    The first part of the conference will focus on the current perspectives for EUMENA energy cooperation based on initiatives at the EU level and MENA regions. In this context, principles for short- to mid-term renewable energy off-take and investment conditions will be discussed. In the second part, the event will look at how to provide the basis for long-term infrastructure investment and the respective institutional framework.

    For further information, please find the report "Desert Power: Getting Started - The manual for renewable electricity in MENA" here or read the report "Policies for International Transmission Investment" here.

    No News is Good News in Climate Change

    The Research Seminar on Environment, Resources and Climate (RSERC) is jointly organized by DIW Berlin, TU Berlin and MCC Berlin. It brings together environmental and resource economists from the Berlin and Potsdam universities and research institutions that discuss latest research by distinguished external scholars or by members of the group.

    On May 3, Matti Liski (Aalto University Helsinki) will present his recent work on climate change and resource economics. He will discuss the effectiveness of climate policies, and in particular carbon pricing, in an environment of delayed climate change.
